#Apple #iPhone 12 mini mini review:

My love affair with the iPhone has returned. It’s been a ways down on the list for some time, bested by iPad Pros & Macs alike. But this device has captivated me. I love just holding it and carrying it around in my grip.

Yay for retro iPhone 5 vibes!

Apple hid an AR Easter egg in its September event announcement

Apple has officially announced its upcoming “Time Flies” event for September 15th, and the company hid a neat augmented reality Easter egg in the event announcement that uses Apple’s ARKit to turn the swirling Apple logo into a floating image of the “9.15” event date.

This is really fun! (Click the Easter Egg link in the article while on your iPhone/iPad.)

Putting on my speculation cap, here’s what I’m hoping to see on the 9/15 #Apple event:

  • #iPadPro inspired #iPhone 12 (duh)
  • Cheap iPad but with new Pro styling
  • “AirPhones”
  • More affordable Watch options
  • Teaser (or beyond!) of first Apple Silicon #Mac
  • A new app surprise of some kind (Terminal for iPadOS? 😎)
    • (Honestly Logic and/or MainStage for iPadOS would be pretty sweet. FPC X would be a stretch, but a man can dream…)

After months of staying at home and sheltering during the pandemic, I just couldn’t take it any more. I had to get out of the city and see fresh scenery and recharge. Making sure to remain socially distanced and take every precaution while traveling, I was able to drive along the gorgeous Oregon coastline and enjoy some much needed R&R. This is a mini-documentary about my journey!

Season 4, Episode 1

Essential Life with Jared is a vlog series all about adventure in Portland & the Pacific Northwest combined with the philosophy of essentialism. It’s about finding your own way and never walking somebody else’s path. It’s about living a creative life that’s most meaningful to you.

Fresh Fusion O Patreon, You Done Me Wrong

I opened the Patreon mobile app on my iPhone. I looked at the feed. Suddenly, in the twinkling of an eye, POOF! A bunch of the creators I follow vanished. Gone. Out of this world. Did they suddenly shut down all their accounts? Was there a rapture and I wasn’t notified? No, it was none of those things. Patreon just had a temporary snafu billing my debit card, and because of that, I was unceremoniously placed in fan purgatory with little elucidation of my crimes. This wasn’t a temporary user experience glitch. This was a UX disaster. And yet, buried in their help center, Patreon states this is exactly how they handle such matters. Boo! Creators and fans deserve better.
